Criminal Justice


CRJU 3250 50E - Crime and the Media
Credits: 3.00
This course analyzes the role the mass media has on human behavior; subsequently affecting human judgement, attitudes, perceptions of crime, and societal reactions to crime in general. This course analyzes how the general public processes the “criminal event” and other pertinent information regarding crime; and how this process is fundamentally derived from the media and an instrumental element in the creation of “fear of crime”. A fundamental question we will address this semester is: whether the mass media plays a significant role in the interpretation if criminality and our criminal justice system.
